Microchipping your pet

We’ve all heard the news about microchipping your dog – but it’s not just dogs that can be chipped. Cats, rabbits, horses and even your pet lizard can be microchipped.

Lifetime pet insurance

Veterinary treatment has improved so much in recent years that our much-loved pets are now living longer and happier lives. But with all those new treatments comes a hefty price at a cost. An unexpected trip to the vets could cost you hundreds of pounds – especially if it’s for emergency treatment.


So thank goodness for pet insurance. Without this cover, financial constraints could mean you have to make the heart-breaking decision between doing what’s best for your pet and what’s best for your bank account. Making sure you have the right pet cover can therefore be critical.

Are we covered for our cats?

Quotes for cat insurance accounted for just 20.6% of all pet quotes onsite in the last month, according to our latest research. That’s despite the fact that cats make up 46.7% of the whole cat and dog population here in the UK.


So whether you want to protect your cat or your pocket, it’s worth looking into pet insurance. You can find information on the different levels of cover here, and you can compare insurance quotes now to see how little it could cost you to protect your cat.
